Tritantic Brass Ensemble
August 7, 2014
When members of the Atlantic Brass Quintet and Triton Brass Quintet join forces, the result is epic. Fondly referred to as Tritantic, this evening of mixed brass ensemble playing features jazzy arrangements by ABQ trumpeter Thomas Bergeron (Kneebody’s Dr. Beauchef, Penguin Dentist) and TBQ trombonist Wes Hopper (Chick Corea’s From Forever commissioned in 2013 by the MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble). Following the Tritantic portion of the evening, faculty and students of the 2014 International Atlantic Brass Quintet Seminar will play an “open-mic” jam session, showing off their improv chops.
